  • What was once a fixture of the Montauk cultural scene faltered recently after the death of its director in 2013. Ruth Widder ran Music for Montauk for two decades and produced more than 90 free concerts for the greater community.
  • With May around the corner, the South Fork has a sense of spring thaw, a warming up not only in the weather, but in and among the various arts organizations that have begun their pre-season events prior to launching their action-packed summer schedules.
  • Guild Hall has extended its footprint, annexing a lot to its south to provide housing for performers and, potentially, artist residencies.
  • The season gets off to a running start with many restaurants posting their Mother's Day Menus early.
  • Sara de Luca has given over Amagansett’s Ille Arts to Saskia Friedrich for a show called “Ubiquity.”
  • Slowly and steadily, however, some of the best of those long neglected are turning up again, whether on Midtown gallery walls, the less sturdy partitions of art fair booths, or, now, in a new home in Chelsea, on one of its highest-profile blocks — 24th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues‚ the location of the Berry Campbell gallery.
  • For all the rich cultural diversity the East End offers, dance has always lagged behind the visual arts, music, and theater. On Tuesday, though, East Hampton audiences will get a rare chance to see a show devoted to tap-dancing.

  • Admit it, we all desperately need some spring in our lives, and a smidgen of meaning wouldn’t hurt either. Sara Nightingale felt the same way, and she has mounted a show that brings together the pretty colors of spring in artwork that also has something to say.

  • Given Robert Dash’s diverse range of interests and talents — he was an artist, writer, horticulturalist, and creator of the Madoo Conservancy gardens at his Sagaponack property — it can be hard to get your arms around the man and his legacy. Extolling one aspect without the others is a poor strategy that could lead to only a third of the story. The Parrish Art Museum understands this and is taking its responsibility seriously in examining his distinctive contributions to the landscape and cultural life of the South Fork.

  • Christopher Byrne knew the significance of the house he purchased on Alewife Brook Road way before he thought about living in it.
